The paper is an analysis of the misuse of the notion of truth, consisting of the construction of collective identities by representing the particular as universal. This procedure finds full expression, in modern times, both in totalitarian ideologies and in post-modern typologies of individual (or individualistic) and collective identities.
Keywords: Dogma, Identity, Ideology, Particular, Universal, Truth.
